Above transcribed from a photocopy of the original document in the possession of Herbert R. Derrick of Lennoxville, Quebec. The "Act" above mentioned, to which Barbara Mock and John Beerwort officially concurred in this document, was an agreement drawn up by Notary Lalanne in Shefford, Quebec in which the family of Johannes Mock, deceased, agreed to relinquish all claim to the family property in favor of Joseph Mock the older brother. Since Barbara Mock lived at Caldwell's Manor, a separate agreement was drawn up at that location, witnessed and signed. This agreement proves that John Beerwort's wife was Barbara Mock.
